Killzone: Mercenary Developer Recruiting for High Profile PS4 Projects

Posted by Sammy Barker

Sir Dan, rise from your grave

Guerrilla Cambridge, the studio behind PlayStation Vita exclusive Killzone: Mercenary, is currently searching for an audio programmer to provide support on “forthcoming projects in a high profile, multi-million selling franchise”. The studio is thought to be switching its attention to the PlayStation 4, with the platform holder purportedly pulling the plug on big budget first-party productions for the handheld.

Exactly what it’s working on, however, remains a mystery. With main studio Guerrilla Games supposedly busy beavering away on a new intellectual property, it may be providing external support as it has with previous Killzone games. There’s also a possibility that it could be taking full control of the sci-fi franchise, with Sony presumably eager to continue the series following the successful sales of Killzone: Shadow Fall.

Personally, we’d like to see the studio return to its roots, and produce fresh MediEvil and Ghosthunter sequels, but we’ve probably got more chance of being struck by lightning. Oh well, one can dream.

So this will be two brand new ip's coming from GG now? So far I heard they were developing a RPG game and now this branch is developer another game? this is good news for sure.

I suppose their core branch (the Killzone branch) is working on that RPG, and Cambridge is working on whatever this is. It's an established IP, so that's pretty cool.

I hope it's just cambridge making a PS4 KZ game. Leave regular Guerilla to make something completely new while Cambridge renovates the KZ franchise.

Away with Killzone, we need more MediEvil.

You can't just have those cliffhangers for MediEvil 3 in both ME2 and PlayStation All Stars and NOT even consider such a game.

Also, they could be making a theater movie as a MediEvil movie listing was leaked along with a Jak movie a while back. Ratchet & Clank, Sly and Heavenly Sword were leaked at the same time SO IDK

I heard great things about Mercenary on Vita so I have faith in these guys to make an awesome PS4 Killzone. Good move to let them take over and the core GG work on a new RPG IP.

I liked KZ3s campaign better that Shadow Fall, but I love the Killzone universe in general, so I would love to see another Killzone. Mercenary seems to be well received all around, so there's hope for a new, good entry intro the series.

And I can't wait to find out if the rumors about the post-apocalyptic RPG by their main branch are true. Maybe we're lucky and get to know something at Gamescom already?

@DHW They did the same with Syphon Filter.

Topic: Thank god they are a better Killzone studio than the original devs (I don't know what went wrong with Shadow Fall) Killzone 2/Liberation are the exceptions.

Welp, 1st-party has jumped off the Vita ship. Here's hoping these PS4 games actually offer something new to play.

I've said for awhile that they had to be a reason that Sony Cambridge became Guerrilla Cambridge and it was probably because they were inheriting the KZ franchise.
